Those who wonder how Piet Boon succeeded to break through as a top designer not only in the Netherlands but also internationally, one look at his collection of furniture and home designs will provide the answer.
His three decade long career was inspired by a desire to combat a lack of functionality in today’s designs; to create solutions that are both functional and beautiful. His appreciation for simplicity is no doubt a hallmark of Dutch design.
Having started as a contractor, designer Piet Boon has an innate sense of pure, timeless forms which he manages to translate flawlessly into home and furniture designs with sturdy yet elegant lines and a contemporary look. Notable in all Piet Boon designs are the honest materials, subdued colours and a high level of comfort. Piet Boon designs homes, offices and hotels, every interior detail such as furnitures, door hardware, bath and bed FEDDE LIVING SERIES.

Meeting the request for compact furniture, the FEDDE series is perfect for easy living. Inspired by the casual and relaxed atmosphere of our beach houses, the FEDDE series comfortably fits into any environment with its loose wide hem and wonderfully soft arm and backrest. The FEDDE series exists as a sofa, fauteuil, loveseat and a pouf and – with its removable covers – is easy to maintain.
linen, lamps, fireplaces, kitchens, bathrooms and beds also carry Piet Boon’s unique signature.
My Design Week choose the most iconic Project of this architect, check out this cool restaurant:
RESTAURANT ‘THE JANE’ IN ANTWERP
Michelin-star chef Sergio Herman and chef Nick Bril created their “fine dining meets rock ’n roll” restaurant vision together with Piet Boon over three years ago in a mythical location in Antwerp; the chapel of a former military hospital. Piet Boon Studio, responsible for the interior design and styling of The Jane, since then collaborated in the chapel’s unique transformation into a high-end, contemporary restaurant with international allure where experience is key.
Based on belief in authenticity, functionality and materials that ‘age beautifully’ designers chose to restore only the highly necessary in the chapel and hence preserve the rest. The original ceiling amongst others conveys the pure, understated and respectful environment that serves as the authentic host for the ultimate fine dining experience.
